Toys-Era TE017 1/6th scale The Laughter 12-inch collectible figure is The Joker from Gotham

Gotham is an American crime drama television series developed by Bruno Heller, based on characters published by DC Comics and appearing in the Batman franchise, primarily those of James Gordon and Bruce Wayne. The series stars Ben McKenzie as the young Gordon, while Heller executive-produces, along with Danny Cannon, who also directed the pilot.

Originally the series would have related only Gordon's early days on the Gotham City Police Department, but the series subsequently included the Wayne character and the origin stories of several Batman villains, including the Penguin, the Riddler, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Two-Face, the Scarecrow, the Joker, Mr. Freeze, and Hugo Strange.


A character based on the Joker, named Jerome Valeska (Cameron Monaghan), is featured in Gotham. Monaghan stated that he drew inspiration from previous interpretations of the Joker for his performance, particularly that of Mark Hamill, adding "I think he’s the Joker in that he represents the idea, the greater concept." The mythology of the Joker is explored further during season three, and Jerome himself returns in the second half of the season bearing a physical resemblance to The New 52 incarnation of the Joker; Jerome's face was surgically removed before his resurrection, forcing him to staple it back in place.

Preview Hot Toys 1/6th scale Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 figures: Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Rocket and Baby Groot

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is a 2017 American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics superhero team Guardians of the Galaxy, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. It is the sequel to 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy and the fifteenth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film is written and directed by James Gunn and stars an ensemble cast featuring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, Sean Gunn, with Sylvester Stallone, and Kurt Russell. In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the Guardians travel throughout the cosmos as they help Peter Quill learn more about his true parentage.


Saw these pictures on the internet and thought it's nice to share :) It looks like Hot Toys will be releasing the full team again. This will be the second time the complete Guardians of the Galaxy team is being released. Drax from the first Guardians of 2014 has yet to see the light or set foot on the shelves but as far as pictures go, Hot Toys promises to release him soon (as seen in the upcoming release post on my toy blog HERE). Kudos to Hot Toys for releasing the complete set of figures. There may never be a platoon, the rest of the gals from Sucker Punch, all the other members of the X-Men and Suicide Squad etc but we can certainly look forward to the Guardians. Hot Toys Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 1/6th Star-Lord Collectible Figure and Rocket are already up for pre-order (posted earlier HERE and HERE) so that leaves only Gamora and Drax since baby Groot seems to feature as an accessory with every figure.

Hot Toys LMS004 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 1:1 scale Groot Life-Size 26cm Collectible Figure

Pre-order

"I am Groot!"

Since the debut of promotional materials from Marvel Studios' highly anticipated blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, fans were instantly thrilled and captivated by the return of Groot, who has now grown a bit since we last saw him at the end of the first movie! Attendees of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 world premiere all expressed their huge love for Groot after seeing the movie.

Today Sideshow and Hot Toys is extremely excited to introduce the Groot life-size collectible figure which is destined to be one of the most adorable Hot Toys life-size figures you'll ever see!

Review II: S.H. Figuarts Game of Death Bruce Lee (Yellow Track Suit) 14cm Tall Action Figure

continued from previous toy blog post...

WATAAAA!!!

Here's the final (fourth) interchangeable facial expression that comes with the S.H. Figuarts Game of Death Bruce Lee (Yellow Track Suit version) 14cm (5.5 inches) tall action figure. The other three facial expressions were shown in my first action figure review posted HERE. I'm quite amazed how they can sculpt the features so accurately on a head that is so small. Apparently it's all attributed to 3D digital printing. This figure also comes with some nice articulation and the extra optional hands allow you to pose this figure in some of Bruce Lee's signature poses / stance.


I don't usually buy small size figures but this figure is certainly an exception. For a figure this small, the sculpting and details are quite good and I'm quite impressed with the overall figure. I also wanted to see how this mini Bruce Lee figure compares with the 1/6th scale Enterbay "Game of Death" Bruce Lee collectible figure - see the pics posted below.

S.H. Figuarts Game of Death Bruce Lee (Yellow Track Suit) 14cm Tall Action Figure Review 1

This was part of my April 2017 haul (see the toy blog post HERE)

This is the S.H. Figuarts Bruce Lee (Yellow Track Suit) Action Figure which was released in January 2017. My childhood was definitely influenced by the legendary Bruce Lee. My father brought me to all the Bruce Lee films, starting with The Big Boss, then Fist of Fury, Way of the Dragon and Enter the Dragon. His Hong Kong and Hollywood-produced films elevated the traditional Hong Kong martial arts film to a new level of popularity and acclaim, sparking a surge of interest in Chinese martial arts in the West in the 1970s. The direction and tone of his films changed and influenced martial arts and martial arts films in the US, Hong Kong and the rest of the world. It's too bad he died so young.


This S.H. Figuarts Bruce Lee (Yellow Track Suit) Action Figure is the second Bruce Lee figure to be released by Bandai under their S.H. Figuarts line. After the success of the first version which was the Fist of Fury Bruce Lee figure released in January 2016, this second version has Bruce Lee wearing his trademark yellow tracksuit as seen in Game of Death. This Set comes with the main figure, optional left and right hands x4 types, optional face expression parts x3 types, Nunchaku x2 types and Pao stick.

Dam Toys 1/6th scale FBI SWAT Team Agent San Diego Midnight Ops 12-inch figure Preview

It's most disconcerting when law enforcement officers dress like the military and are armed to the teeth like they are going to war. The battles are no longer confined to the war zones but are now fought on the homeland in one's own backyard. That's a very scary thought because it means you are not safe anywhere anymore. What with the recent UNITED Airlines fiasco it seems the world is descending into chaos and mayhem is the new normal. There's a picture of this FBI SWAT officer flashing his badge in this post and I thought that was totally redundant seeing how he is dressed and armed. He's not going to flash his badge and ask the perpetrator to freeze. He looks like he's going to shoot and ask questions later.

April 2017 Haul: S.I.C. Masked Rider X and Appologeist plus S.H. Figuarts Bruce Lee figures

What happens when the figures you have pre-ordered have not arrived and you have to satisfy the toy bug that is itching inside you? I end up getting stuff I didn't pre-order but bought on impulse because I liked what I saw and these are my April 2017 haul so far, pending the arrival of Black Panther: The S.I.C. or Super Imaginative Chogokin Masked Rider X and Appologeist plus the SH Figuarts Bruce Lee (Yellow Track Suit version).


I can blame the method of pre-ordering for these impulse buys but I'm not sorry that I bought them so no complaints here. Because 1/6th scale manufacturers believe that pre-orders are the best way to go for selling collectible figures, collectors like us end up waiting months (sometimes up to a year) to get the figures we want, figures which we first saw as prototypes in pictures released by the companies to solicit our pre-orders. Some of these prototypes might not even see the light of day if the response to the preview pics are lukewarm or worse. Case in point: Hot Toys 1/6th scale Brock Rumlow aka Crossbones (played by Frank Grillo in Captain America: Civil War) 12-inch figure. Since the preview pics at many of the toy shows, it has failed to show up for pre-orders or any of Hot Toys catalogues. Toys, unlike limited edition adult collectibles, are mass produced and sold at major stores worldwide. There is no need to pre-order because chances are, you can probably get your hands on them easily. Some adult collectibles and figures that become highly demanded after they are released might not be so readily available because the supply was dependant on pre-orders which can mean limited supply. That's when the secondary market gets exciting as prices for them keep going up and up as their demand heats up.

Comparison pictures of Art Figures 1/6th scale Judge Dredd and VTS Judge Anderson figures

continued from previous toy blog post...

After reviewing the VTS VM-013 1/6th scale New Epoch Cop 12-inch figure aka Olivia Thirlby as Judge Anderson from DREDD movie (action figure review HERE), let's see how she fares beside the 2014 released Art Figures AF-015 1/6th scale Heavy Armoured Special Cop "DREDD" 12-inch figure (Reviewed earlier HERE and HERE). These two figures are released by different manufacturers and it's interesting to see how they look beside each other. Art Figures also released their version of Judge Anderson but she just didn't make the cut. Art figures' version looks rushed and certainly not up to standard compared with VTS version. You can see the preview pics of Art Figures AF-020 1:6 Heavy Armoured Special Cop (Female) figure HERE.


These two figures look quite good together, even if they are made differently. The red color on the helmets are different, Judge Anderson's helmet is a tad brighter than Dredd's. Other minor differences exist but they are not as obvious. VTS 1/6th scale New Epoch Cop's (Judge Anderson) Lawgiver Mk. II has more colors than Dredd's which is mostly black. Knee pads and shin guards are different too.

Square Enix Play Arts Kai Marvel Universe Variant 1/7th scale Magneto 10-inch figure

Magneto is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with the X-Men. Created by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby, the character first appears in The X-Men #1 (cover-dated Sept. 1963) as the archenemy of the X-Men. The character is a powerful mutant, one of a fictional subspecies of humanity born with superhuman abilities, who has the ability to generate and control magnetic fields. Magneto regards mutants as evolutionarily superior to humans and rejects the possibility of peaceful human-mutant coexistence; he aims to conquer the world to enable mutants (whom he refers to as "homo superior") to replace humans as the dominant species.


This upcoming newly designed Square Enix Play Arts Kai Marvel Universe Variant 1/7th scale Magneto action figure will stand at 10 inches tall. The figure includes a plastic cape (which does not look to be removable), a swap out portrait, interchangeable hands, and two effects pieces. As with all Play Arts Kai figures, Magneto will also include a figure stand. The figure is scheduled for release in August. Play Arts Variant Magneto will be priced at 15,984 Yen (about $145 USD)

ACI TOYS x Suwahara Hiroyuki's Daimyo Series: 1/6th scale Takeda Shingen 12-inch action figure

From ACI Toys:
Following the success of Oda Nobunaga, first Daimyo in the ACI TOYS x Suwahara Hiroyuki Series, we are excited to introduce the second Daimyo in our line up ~ Takeda Shingen.

Often referred to as "The Tiger of Kai", Shingen is among the most influential Daimyos during the Sengoku period, along side his rivals "The Dragon of Echigo" Uesugi Kenshin and "Lion of Sagami" Hōjō Ujiyasu.
Based on Japanese illustrator Suwahara Hiroyuki's illustrations, ACI TOYS captured the essence and recreated the headsculpt of Shingen as the strategic mastermind of the era.


Staying truthful to Hiroyuki's illustrations as well as historical references, iconic features of Shingen such as the white fur on his highly detailed helmet, the golden Buddhist prayer beads and " kāṣāya" robe that symbolizes his devotion to the religion are recreated in 1/6 scale, with the combination of black and gold armor and crimson red "Jin-baori" further gives a distinctive look to this historical figure like no others.
